STEM learning programme

There are endless STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learning opportunities along our canals and rivers, from understanding biological habitats to calculating the physics of water management.

Watch our short film to see Ellowes Hall School demonstrating how water pressure is used in engineering lock design.

Real world inspiration

Our STEM learning programme aims to inspire secondary school students using our waterways as an ever developing learning resource. From our historical engineering works, to learning about modern ecology challenges, there is a wealth of opportunities to learn about all STEM subjects.

Our practical activities and waterway visits can help bring the curriculum to life, and our careers pages give an insight into the huge variety of work that we do.
